RFC Editor and Published Standards

IAB encourages public discussion of the RFC Independent Submissions process

As part its role in supporting the RFC Editor function, the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) has created a public mailing list for the discussion of the RFC Independent Submissions process.

The purpose of this discussion is to achieve consensus, in the coming weeks, on a process for fair and appropriate approval of independent submissions to the RFC series. These are separate from IETF, IAB or IRTF approved submissions.

Individuals familiar with the RFC series and working in the Internet research and engineering community are invited to join this mailing list and participate.

Here is an initial draft proposal

Leslie Daigle, Chair, IAB.
